Vanguard Application 2016-2017

Vanguard Giveaways & Purchases

While the Vanguard team loves to "give" you things and let you purchase them, please remember that all items you have been gifted through Vanguard or that you purchase through the stipend are property of the Vanguard team. They do not belong to you personally.

Things to note:

  • If you move between Fulton schools at any point, the items may move with you.
  • If you leave Fulton County and there are Vanguard members at the school you are leaving, your Vanguard purchases/gifts may be left with them.
  • If you leave Fulton County and there are no Vanguard members at the school you are leaving, your Vanguard purchases/gifts should be returned to a LC Lead or the Instructional Tech Dept. at Central Office.

If you have specific questions, please contact a LC Lead or Heather.

Information about the upcoming stipend will be sent out in the next few weeks. You will be given all of the information you need as soon as it is ready.
